MEP Nikki backing British Heart Foundation furniture campaign

Nikki Sinclaire MEP is urging West Midlands residents to donate their unwanted furniture and electrical items to help the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Birmingham stores fight for every heartbeat.

The Euro MP is backing the BHF, which sells the items in its stores to raise money to fund lifesaving research into coronary heart disease, the UK’s single biggest killer. For over 50 years BHF has pioneered research that’s transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.

BHF Furniture & Electrical stores collect household items for free – everything from kettles, toasters, sofas, TVs and wardrobes. BHF Midlands stores are in particular need of stock and are urging the public to have a clear out and book a free collection service online at: or by calling 0808 250 0031..

The BHF is also calling for hotels, offices or business who have excess items to donate so they can continue to fund lifesaving research and equipment in the Midlands area. 

Nikki Sinclaire MEP said, "I'm pleased to be able to support any initiative which helps people recycle items which then can be resold by the BHF Furniture & Electrical stores.  With help from locals, beds, sofas and televisions can be turned life-saving research to fight heart disease.

“I would like to urge all local residents to set aside half an hour and clear through their unwanted household items. BHF stores even offer a free collection service so donating has never been so easy.”
